MountKiscoNews.com is proud to announce that Lizzy Balter is the winner of the Fox Lane Student of the month for November. The student of the month is sponsored by the Mount Kisco Coach Diner on East Main Street. Lizzy will receive a gift certificate to the Mount Kisco Coach Diner.
As printed in this space last month, Lizzy Balter was on the Fox Lane High School swim relay team that went to the New York State Swimming Championships. At the championship meet, the freestyle relay team finished sixth in New York State, just 2.5 seconds off of the winning time. The medley relay team also finished in the top ten.
Lizzy, however, is more than just a swimmer. She is ranked near the top of her class academically while taking challenging advanced placement courses. At Fox Lane High School, she is also a class leader and serves as Treasurer of the Fox Lane High School Senior Class.
In addition to swimming and school, Lizzy volunteers at Learning Links. Learning Links provides after-school tutorial and homework help, along with structured enrichment activities, to at-risk children of low-income families.
While she already has received an acceptance to college, Lizzy hopes to attend Bowdoin College in Maine. Any college would be fortunate to have her as a student.
